A Kelowna Waterfront home: Now and then
The shores of Lake Okanagan have certainly changed over the years. Those small cabins that once lined the lakefront, are now few and far between. These prime waterfront lots are now home to spectacular, luxurious Kelowna waterfront homes.
Back in the early 1970’s Kelowna was the place for a beach vacation. Laid back and perfect for a summer in the sun. Most of the Kelowna waterfront homes were small cabins and beach houses, very different from the luxury properties that line the shores today.
Let’s take a look at one Kelowna Waterfront home: Then and now.
The CEO of QVA, Quincy Vrecko, is a leading waterfront real estate specialist in Kelowna and will compare what this Kelowna Waterfront home used to be and what it is now.
Let’s start with then:
Sale Price: $1 470 000
House: 1000sq.ft beach home built in the 1940’s
I sold this home to the current owners back in 2014. A hard working couple from Calgary looking to get into the real estate market in Kelowna and secure a Kelowna Waterfront home for their future retirement.
The home was a small waterfront cabin built in the 1940’s. Quaint and cute, the home was only 1000 sq.ft with 2 bedrooms, one bathroom.
What attracted them to the property, was the lot and location. The lot was 62ft of waterfront and offered amazing beach and deep water for moorage. This is where they would eventually build their dream home.
After enjoying this little cabin on the Lake for 2 years, they eventually brought it down and started to build their dream home.
Fast forward to now:
Estimated Price: $6 500 000
House: 6000sq.ft luxury home with high end finishings, 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, one bedroom suite
Now that .20 acre lot is home to a spectacular luxury Kelowna waterfront home. Built by James Debruin from Debruin fine homes. This luxury estate boasts, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, guest quarters, media room, wine room, inground pool and lush private patios just to name a few.
Out on the shores of Lake Okanagan, this Kelowna waterfront home has a beautiful dock with electric boat life to complete the perfect Okanagan lifestyle.
Truly a masterpiece on the waterfront. This Kelowna Waterfront home is enjoyed all year round by the newly retired couple who had a dream 5 years ago and has now made it a reality.
